We can start with the Democrat segregationists who created the Ku Klux Klan to terrorize black Republicans (that’s all they were allowed to be) and the whites that supported them, all the way to today where anyone who supports President Trump is a “white supremacist”. All while liberals, who’ve swapped the white hoods for black masks, crash any event to create mayhem and violence.
But if you look at liberals on television, in state capitols, or even on Capitol Hill, despite their dubious past, Democrats are pointing the finger of racism at everyone else and there’s a term for that.
A psychoanalytical theory, projection is the process whereby one subject believes they see attributes (both good and bad) in another. The theory views this tendency as a defense mechanism whereby unenviable or unpleasant traits, impulses or ideas are attributed to another. In this way, the projector is able to avoid the unpleasantness in themselves. However, the theory goes on to explain that in severe cases of projection, the condition of projection may degenerate into paranoid delusions to the point that the projector believes others are responsible for the projector’s problems and are secretly plotting against them. The projection basically allows a subject to ignore faults within themselves.

President Barack Obama’s attorney general Janet Napolitano designated veterans as potential “terrorist” threat, simply because they were convenient.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Wednesday that she was briefed before the release of a controversial intelligence assessment and that she stands by the report, which lists returning veterans among terrorist risks to the U.S. The department’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) issued April 7 the nine-page document titled “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.”

It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration,” said the report, which also listed gun owners and veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars as potential risks.

While the report attributes those traits to the “rightwing”, doesn’t “those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely” sound a lot like today’s Antifa thugs?
Now, aside from Major Hassan at Fort Hood, can you name some recent so-called massacres committed by extremist veterans? Not too many, but because of media bias-by-omission, some of the most dangerous domestic terrorists in the United States were liberals and let off the hook because they haven’t injured anyone… yet.

Liberal terrorists seem to be routinely let off the hook, their motivations ignored or muddied, while the finger of suspicion is pointed to the right where permits for protests are alway almost obtained, they create zero property damage and if there is violence, it’s because the left brought it with them.
But as long as it’s “mostly peaceful”….
